The Job Shop spotlights volunteers in May

Published: 9 May 2024

Volunteers bring talent and passion to so many facets of daily life – community outreach, environmental programs, arts and education to name a few - there really is ‘something for everyone’. This myriad of opportunities means there’s a place for everyone to let their unique skills and interests flourish.

To support National Volunteer Week, Monday 20 to Sunday 26 May, the Job Shop is highlighting its free volunteer-jobs program. Organisations looking for new volunteer recruits can list the opportunities they have on offer and take advantage of the Job Shop’s Facebook page, weekly job-alert electronic newsletters, and jobs board. People looking to volunteer can seek mentoring, training, and support like interview skills.

The Job Shop started the volunteers project in October 2023, recognising the great contribution of volunteers in making Eurobodalla a great place to live. They also see volunteering as a pathway to employment in some circumstances, a positive way for job seekers to continue their journey to employment. So far, they have promoted more than 20 volunteer positions and the program will continue as a permanent feature of Job Shop offerings.

People looking to volunteer should visit Council's The Job Shop webpage and subscribe to the weekly job alert. Organisations looking for volunteers can submit information by contacting the job shop directly be email or by calling 4474 7380.
